with the representative of the nra. the nra had harsh words for the white house after that meeting saying they feel as though this administration is trying to crack down on their second am d amendment rights. after the vice president met with representatives from the video game industry, there were also some stern words and i will read you a snippet from a letter that the entertainment consumers association said, quote, we're asking you to support the public's constitutional right to have access and not to blame the media. so those are some of the backdrop against which the vice president is going to offer the recommendations on tuesday. >> before i let you go, though. who is the biggest obstacle to him becoming confirmed at least as this week is wrapped up. >> you really have obstacles on a lot of different sides, thomas. you have democrats that have criticized some of the past controversial comments and chuck hagel is a republican who are against him and lindsay graham has expressed some concern, but senator chuck schumer, a democrat might be key in getting him confirmed and he's the third ranki
, and request funding to treat mental illness as well as funding to enhance school safety. already the nra is on the attack before it's even seen the plan. the group released this ad which paints obama as an elitist hypocrite. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes, but he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun free zones for ours. >> it's a tough ad. dan lothian is at the white house. but i understand the president is fighting back with his own pr strategy because when he makes his big announcement he'll be surrounded by children who wrote letters to him begging for gun control. >> reporter: that's right. you know, we see the white house do this in the past, usually it's around a fiscal fight where the president's putting pressure on congress he'll be surrounded by families from across the country. well, in fact, the
that the nra and its affiliates push so hard against. >> all they have to do is just accept reasonable restrictions. nobody is trying to take away your gun. nobody is trying to take away your right to go hunting or target shooting or have protection in your home. simply we're trying to have some reasonable things so people aren't killed. >> today the mayor's anti-illegal guns group is going on air with an ad that invokes sandy hook and features the mother of the youngest victim of that tucson shooting. >> 20 heart-broken families lost a child in the sandy hook school shooting. i know how much it hurts. my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? >> indeed. the same question could be asked by a mother and father of one of the latest shooting victims in our daily tally of gun casualties, including a 15-year-old girl shot and killed early today in milwaukee. in maryland last night a gunman left one dead and one critically wounded before t
control featuring young children, the n.r.a. told its members to quote, brace for the fight of the century. there are serious doubts whether assaults weapons ban can pass in the house, more deception, a week after the transportation secretary said it would be safe for the boeing dreamliner, f.a.a. grounds all boeing dreamliners, and perhaps the biggest hoax of them all, the notre dame star, manti te'o, the story that captivated the story that she died, was he in on it and lance armstrong, ioc stripped him from medal from the 2000 games just for good measures. no lies or hoaxes here. here comes "varney & company." m twongs -- cook what you love, and save your money. joe doesn't know it yet, but he'll wk his way up from busser to waiter to chef before opening a restaurant specializing in fish and me from the great northwest. he'lstart investing early, he'll find some good people to help guide him, nd he'll set money aside from his first day of work to his last, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> so much for boeing's dreamliner being safe to fly. f.a.a
insight into that fascinating meeting today at the white house between vice president biden and the nra. what can the vice president, what can the white house reasonably expect to get out of the nra today? >> the nra is going to go in there with a conciliatory face. they're being smart. they're sending not their top lobbyist but an official who has worked with biden over the years, worked with him in the '90s in the senate, is actually friends with him from the delaware beach, jim baker, the nra's number two, but he's coming with a very hard message. the nra told me that in the past 18 days, their paid memberships have gone up 100,000. they've gone from 4.1 million to 4.2 million. and they tell me that before this debate is over, they want to get to 5 million. so the nra sees this fight as a growth opportunity. willie, it's $25 a year, you get a free camo duffel bag with that. and we're told that jim baker, the nra lobbyist, is going to tell vice president biden we're willing to discuss, talk to you about any possible constructive solution, but here's the kicker, we listen to people bey
, the nra has come to the white house. >> the gun debate is raging. >> later i meet with the nra. >> freedom is not a handgun on the hip of every teacher. >> work it into the prom them. enchantment under the siege. >> no one needs ten bullets to kill a deer. >> that cheesy grin. >> little 6-year-old kids riddled with bullet holes. >> that joe biden just can't wipe off his face. >> president barack obama is considering taking executive action aimed at limiting your second amendment rights. >> could only be to take guns away from people. >> i don't quite understand why everybody would be afraid. >> it has been enough. >> the nra, which wants to be feared and respected, is not respected and should no longer be feared. >> i agree with wane lapierre, you, sir, are [ bleep ] in the head. ♪ >> another hectic day in washington and just ahead we'll have more on the president's cabinet reshuffle, including the nomination of jack lew to lead the treasury department. but, first, it is target tuesday. that's the day when vice president joe biden says he'll present his recommendations on preventing gun
with the nra. >> climate change increases our risks of being on monday. >> 2012 is the hottest year on record in history. >> i am not a football coach, but as remarkable player as he is, he was not in a position to continue playing. >> the most debated story in washington this week, rg3 and his wounded knee, and washington's broken hearts. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- hello, i'm mark shields, sitting in this week for bordon peterson. president obama did not have to look very far to find his new treasury secretary, jack lew. at the announcement, the president and outgoing treasury secretary timothy geithner. >> our economy is better positioned for tomorrow than most of those other countries hit by the financial crisis. the tough decisions tim made and carried out deserve a lot of credit for that. i understand that tim is ready for a break. obviously, we are sad to see him go, but i cannot think of a better person to continue tim 's work at treasury than jack lew. >> unlike most treasury secretaries, jack lew earn his stripes and a washington and not wall st
member team returned to ohi to inspect a trench the nra had ordered plant operator kansai electric to double the length of the trench after the first onsite inspection in november. crews dug it to 100 meters. representatives of the nuclear watchdog say they will ask kansai electric to shut down the plant if inspectors conclude an active fault runs underneath it. kansai electric executives insist land slips and not a fault caused the fissures below ohi. >> translator: we'll carefully analyze what we saw today. it won't be an easy task determining what it is. >> the team of experts will be back at the plant on saturday. then they will meet early next year to produce an assessment based on the results of their inspection. >>> nra experts are checking the ground beneath a number of power plants in this earthquake prone country. their reports on some of them could keep the facilities off line for the future or forever. nra teams say they found one active fault under sturuga nuclear compound. and another fracture intersects with it under reactor two. they revealed their assessment of hig
's meeting which will include the nra. during the meeting yesterday with victims of gun violence and gun safety groups, biden said the president was ready to get gun reform done with or without the help of congress. >> i want it clear to the american public that on behalf of the president we are reaching out to all parties on whatever side this falls. the president is going to act. executive orders, executive action that can be taken. we haven't decided what that is yet. >> inning choice of words there. those words. executive action. though perhaps also intended to contain expectations for advocates hoping for some sort of sweeping legislative change. it set off a firestorm in the gun rights community. south carolina congressman jeff duncan said this in a statement after hearing that quote. the founding fathers never envisioned executive orders being used to restrict our constitutional rights. we live in a republic, not a dictatorship. the drudge report put up a picture of hitler and stalin. my time you use hitler you are losing. rush lump ball warned listeners they are planning a gun gr
, those demographics mirror the nra itself. the nra's board is 87% male and 93% white. the nra's wayne lapierrre keeps insisting his group is bipartisan but take a look at this. the overwhelming majority of congress members with an "a" rating from the nra are republicans. on the other end of the spectrum, the fs are almost entirely democrats. a little sliver of red there you can barely even see it. and of course, the funding follows accordingly. 97% of nra funds went to republican in the last election. but it seems like the nra is not only not representative of the full american demographic. but data suggests that it is out of step with the rest of the country as well. on this issue of gun safety. new polls show that the majority of americans support the president's gun safety proposals. new polls out today, 85% support closing the gun show loophole. 80% prevent people with mental illness from getting guns. 55% support a ban on semi-automatic weapons. when you look, interestingly just women, it is more dramatic. it is the same all the way down the list. more women than men support a feder
's not right. it's designed to put people on the spot. >>> playing offense. the nra fights back against the president. >> he's more than willing to demonize his opponents, silence his critics, and slur the nra. >> our special guest, susan o z eisenhower taking on the web ad about the obama daughters. >>> and surprise, even bo obama gets into the act as the first family greets unsuspecting tourists at the white house. with, in fact, a fist bump from the commander in chief. >>> and good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. a busy day here, secretary clinton final facing tough questions from senate republicans about benghazi. >> i'm glad that you're accepting responsibility. i think that ultimately with your leaving you accept the culpability for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you from your post. >> well, joining me now for our daily fix, chris cillizza, msnbc contributor and nbc's capitol hil
was passed in the clinton administration, i was a member of congress then, the gun lobbyers, the nra came in and chased out a number of the members of the house and senate who voted for us. so you see members with cold feet. they played it safe, but who paid the price? certainly these 20 children and their six teachers paid the price. why do we have to go this long? we had to go this long because of fear of the gun lobby. i was there to say yesterday they are not to be feared. they have had it to themselves. there has not been an opponent. the only kind of opponent they respect and that the congress respect is a public opponent. people in the streets people saying this time you got to do it. it's gone too far. >> john: congresswoman, i think back on how president reagan was a significant signaturery in support of the ban. does it ever surprise you that the party of reagan has so completely rejected the values of reagan? >> it does. even his values on raising taxes which he did a lot of when-- >> john: 11 times. >> when he was here in washington before i even came. but what you have is a h
in the nbc news/"wall street journal" about the nra. 41% think of them positively, 34% negative. hollywood think 23% favorable, 46% negatively. we talked before about lance armstrong and pr. clearly the nra has got a pr challenge here. how do you think they've done so far since newtown in positioning themselves to be strong in this fight? >> why are you looking at me, mark? >> i'm just starting with you randomly. i went alphabetical. >> yeah, the nra has had good days and bad days in this. and actually, that depends how you look at it. even when the nra has a bad day and the media is calling them too aggressive, that's a good day for the nra. that usually ends up working in their favor in terms of membership. but, you know, i think the politics of maligning the nra is probably not a strategically good idea. that poll, for example, showing the favorability numbers, gun sales have skyrocketed, there's been an urgency to vilify the nra. for example, there's an ad out right now, one of a dozen, maligning a congressman named john barrow, a democrat in georgia. it's a democrat-on-democrat sort o
were pretty columbine. his entire package fell flat. >> congressman, you had a reading from the nra. you voted for reducing the waiting time for weapons from reduced to one day. do you think we are at a tipping point, but there'll be some kind of a seismic change? >> since the topic of politics, i would add a lot of people lately accredit 1993 crime bill for the reason republicans took a majority for the first time in 40 years and so it really has a lot to do with the politics. i'm very grateful to be at the university of chicago. only in chicago could use something called the nonpartisan and bipartisan center for apologies but david axelrod and rahm emanuel. >> is a whole different story. >> we have to come back with the bipartisan issue. >> and it's sure if he goes so far. the conversation has changed and i will tell you, this goes to a no care whether it's gotten discussion, fiscal discussion or anything else, at this moment in time you have republicans than i happen to be one of them with the ira they would be more than happy to sit down and begin to have a conversation about gu
meets with the nra in the white house. >> there is no similar solution to how we deal with the kinds of things that happened up in newtown or colorado or the general gun violence that exists in america today and. the president and i and the cabinet understands that it is a complicated issue. >> vice-president biden met with the nra, among others, at the white house this week. he's expected to deliver gun control or commissions to the president as early as next tuesday. colby, will this be a showdown with the nra over an assault weapons ban? >> no, it will not be gunfight at the o.k. corral. they will oppose any effort to do any thing on guns, and they may prevail. and there will probably be some agreement on background checks. to be parochial about this, in the district of columbia it would mean nothing to us regardless of any proposal did last year, the metropolitan police department recovered 1600 firearms. the year before, 2000 firearms. since 2003, more than 20,000 illegal weapons have been recovered in the district of columbia. no legal weapons allowed, and yet we recovered over
school shootings, the nra has released a video. the same group that blamed the violent video games for the massacre in newtown. >>> and scott brown's political future, more observers saying he won't run for senate. and as i said, corey booker, who has announced his intention to run for senator in new jersey. the problem is he may have to run against fellow democrat and current senator franken lautenberg, as far as we can tell, they agree on just about everything. corey booker will answer steve kornacki's questions and will get tonight's last word. ♪ ♪ ♪ hi dad. many years from now, when the subaru is theirs... hey. you missed a spot. ...i'll look back on this day and laugh. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. . >>> so newark mayor cory booker has a problem, he wants to run for senate. the problem is there is currently an incumbent democratic senator in the seat he wants to run for. he wants to respect that senator, he hopes that that senator, who happens to be 88 years old, will announce his retirement. that has not happened yet. so how does cory booker run and not run
with the n.r.a. this afternoon, biden gave us a glimse into what some of those suggestions might be. watch this. >> there's an emerging set of recommendations, not coming from me, but coming from the groups we've met with and i'm focus on the ones that relate primarily to gun ownership, the type of weapons that they own. and one is, there's a surprising, so far, a surprising recurrence of suggestions that we have universal background checks. i've never quite heard as much talk about the need to do something about high capacity magazines, as i've heard spontaneously from every group that we've met with so far. and the last area, which is an area at that is-- the whole question of the ability of any federal agency to do any research on the issue of gun violence. >> sean: now, keep in mind, uncle joe made those comments before he met with members of gun rights groups and from the sound of it the meeting was very unproductive. the n.r.a. puts out a statement. we were disappointed how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with attacking a second
anything. what's your response? >> my response is the nra is trying to sell guns and they're going to continue to try to sell guns and they're going to try to use these situations to sell more guns. we need to know where they are. they're very disciplined in terms ever their messaging, but to expect anything other than buy more guns coming from the nra is actually at this point insane. we need to take a closer look at the president's directives and his executive orders. they make sense. they would address a situation like this. one thing that's interesting, karen, we haven't talked much about the militia groups and extremist groups and how they factor into the discussion around gun control but we don't have to go too far back into our history to look at things like church burnings or look at oklahoma city bombing, these groups and these kind of individuals can do a lot of destruction. it's race based and doesn't necessarily mean it's better or worse than something like newtown, but at the end of the day the reason we need comprehensive gun safety is to try to stave off attacks and
from them, why isn't congress holding hearings on this? rather than pulling the nra do into these meetings and brow-beating them over exercising a right that the founders guaranteed, why not invite the pharmaceutical companies into capitol hill and see if we can find the connection between these psychiatric drugs and the murder ags rages that they send some people into. >> shannon: larry hunter, spokesman for gun appreciation day on the 19th. many, many angles need to be discussed. we know those who are planning counter activities to what you have. we will see how it plays out on the 19th. >> thank you. >> shannon: join sean hannity for a one-hour special, as he talked to legal gun owner who is were publicly identified by a new york newspaper. he talks to them about their personal safety fears and what every gun overowner can do to protect their second amendment right. the nra's idea to place armed guards in schools may be gaining traction in texas. the lieutenant governor is proposing intensive training for teachers, in which each school district would decide who carri
the vice president and represents the nra rather than wayne lapierre who i think cost the nra a huge, huge percentage of people who support the nra, obviously. but universal background checks gets the door open, and maybe then you can get high-capacity magazines. >> 75% want that also. so i keep missing the political minefield of why a republican can't move on guns. i'm not seeing it. i look at the numbers. >> look at the 100,000 new members of the nra, literally, now, of all times? it's a pretty deep division, andrea mitchell. >> and i have seen no sign, even though they very smartly did keep wayne lapierre out of the white house meeting, i don't see any sign that the nra is ready to give on the background checks, even, which they ought to. but they have not conceded anything. they feel really empowered, as mika just pointed out, the rise in members, they say rise in money, but it isn't their grass-roots membership that really matters, it's the clout they have in washington. they feel really empowered by this, and guns are leaping off the shelves even as the vice president was sitting dow
action. here's the wall street journal. the nra put out a new ad yesterday. [video clip] >> are the president's children more important than yours? why is the skeptical of putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards and their school? mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes. he's just another elitist hypocrite when it comes to a fair share of security. protection for their children and gun-free zones for our kids. host: that the latest ad by the nra, put out yesterday, getting a lot of feedback about the ad invoking the president's children. the "washington times" has this headline this morning about president obama's event this morning. that is our question for all of you. if president obama acts on his own with executive action, do you support that idea? we're getting your take on that this morning. we will go to sandra in sulphur springs, texas, a republican. caller: how are you? i just have a question to ask the rest of the people listening. what about the fort hood shootings? has anybody thought about how many
the wall here in a lot of respects. i am a longtime nra member. that does not demonize me, i hope. there is a definite political atrophy that says if you are a and are a member you do not have two and sells to rub together. the reality is that the president -- two brain cells to rub together. there have been a lot of terrific defense. the solving of this problem -- let me see if i can get this clear for you. this is peter, right? what i was pointing out is that in california we have a responsibility to make sure that every weapon is transferred. i was a firearms license dealer for 25 years so i know what i am talking about. the result of that is -- you brought up the gun show loophole, which is important. people in other states can go and buy weapons in virginia, but it in the back of their car and take it across to pennsylvania. i was watching c-span earlier this morning. the mayor of philadelphia said they have guns were the criminals are renting guns they have bought in virginia. it is very important which has not been addressed, if you are going to register firearms, it has to
of the n.r.a. as he spoke to reporters following the shooting in newtown, connecticut, which he says should be a broad solution. [video clip] >> is the press and political class here in washington, d.c. so consumed by fear and hatred of the n.r.a. and american gun owners that you are willing to accept a world where real resistance to evil monsters is alone, unarmed, school principal left to surrender her life -- her life -- to shield children in her care? no one, regardless of personal, political project dis, -- prejudice, has the right to impose that sacrifice. ladies and gentlemen, there's no national one size fits all solution to protecting our childr children. but do know this president zeroed out school of urgency planning grants in last year's bucket and scrapped secure our schools policing grants in next year's budget. with all of the foreign aid the united states does, with all the money in the federal budget, can't we afford to put a police officer in every single school? even if they did that, politicians have no business and no authority denying us the raoeigh right, ability an
earlier today, a breakfast meeting with a head of the nra. washington continues to debate what to do with the issue of gun violence in america. from this morning, the christian science monitor breakfast here on c-span. [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2013] [captioning performed by national captioning institute] >> here we go. thank you for coming. our guest this morning is david keene, president of the national rifle association. our guest has had a lifelong interest in politics. he is a graduate of the university of wisconsin law school. he ran unsuccessfully for the united states senate, and has worked as an operative for a who's who of republican candidates. he was a political assistant to spiro agnew. he has had key roles in the presidential campaigns of ronald reagan, george h.w. bush, and robert dole. he has been a fellow at the harvard institute of politics. so much for biography. now on to the exciting matters of process. we are on the record. no filing of any kind while the practice is underway. there is no embargo when the burress test is under way except
't believe how that newspaper is responding. that will be new at 10. and also, the top of the hour, the n.r.a. calls for armed guards in every school and now one town in new jersey, following through with its plans to put guns in schools starting today. back to nicole, we've got the dow up 230 points, i've got to believe that apple is a huge winner today. >> it sure is. just like all 30 dow components that have up arrows today. apple is up nearly 4% and that's a gain of over $21. the reason why, well, first of all, you have the january effect. everybody's jumping in to buy and second, it's a great day on wall street because of what we saw in washington, and a new iphone or iphone six? that's what apple-- applications are finding the app usage logs, and identifier of an iphone 6.1 according to a tech website. get ready for the next apple product, everybody? >> do you remember, nicole, i think only a matter of a week, week and a half, two weeks tops, we opened the show saying did apple crack below 500, yes, it did, 499 and change, i think. >> right, right. stuart: and now. >> well, it's doing w
hate to say that, but i've said it before. the nra is in the dna of the g.o.p. they're not going to let it out. they might have a hearing. i don't think they'll let a bill come out. the senate will come out and i don't know if they'll be able to deal with it. they like the nra and the nra likes to sell guns and they like to sell high capacity magazines. i'm not against the nra per se. i'm not against the second amendment. but i am against the high capacity magazines and the assault rifles, and i think the reasonable restrictions we can have in this country to protect the public and background checks loopholes at gun shows needs to be stopped but i don't think the government will let it happen. >> michael: it's december pressing when you see the news, all this gunfire and the republicans will not move because they're in the hands of the nra. it's really pathetic. they are a bunch of clowns sometimes. we are a better country because of people like you. thank you. >> thank you. >> reporter: it's been 39 days since the tragedy at sandy hook. at least 1131 has died from gun violence. that's
. you're a board member of the nra, which i don't think many people know. >> we have 76 board members. >> but you're a board member of the nra. >> yeah, mm-hmm. >> what is your view of the gun debate right now. and where can you see some kind of consensus? >> a member of the national rifle association at the very beginning said we ought to include people who have been adjudicated as mentally unstable in the national -- in the list of people who can't get guns. that was stopped by ted kennedy because the lobbyists didn't want that to happen. about half the states don't really get that information into the national check and get those in. if obama really considered this an important issue, he might have done something about it when he had a democratic house and a democratic senate. all this talk about republican obstructionism, the republicans had a majority of the house the last two years. the first two years of his presidency, he could have done immigration, didn't. could have passed something on gun control, didn't. >> do you own a gun? >> yes. >> what do you have? >> a shotgun. i li
president biden and the nra, their much-hyped gun control sitdown, hours away. >> and hollywood's best waiting with anticipation. we are counting down to the academy award nominations. >> i can't wait. >> are you excited? >> i love the movies. sure. >> so do i. >> i think "argo" is the only one i want to see that got a lot of nominations. >> welcome to "early start." i'm zoraida sambolin. >> i'm john berman. we will start with the flu. it is spreading with a vengeance across the u.s. not only did the flu season get off to a really early start, cases are proving to be more severe than last year. the latest flu advisory says 41 states are dealing with widespread activity, more than 2,200 people are hospitalized. the hardest-hit states, pennsylvania and south carolina. each reporting 22 flu-related deaths. illinois now says they had six deaths. cases in south dakota spiked, almost doubling in the span of a week. it's so ban in boston, they declared a public health emergency. since october there have been 700 confirmed cases in boston, a rate ten times higher than last year. >> we've seen
headed by joe biden taking aim on stopping gun violence but the n.r.a. and other groups fighting back this morning. they say it is a cover to attack the second amendment. let's go to our bureau. peter doocy with a report. >> the president of the national rifle association said in a cnn interview last night that by inviting his organization into the white house, the administration was just checking a box so they could say they met with supporters of the second amendment. here's the n.r.a.'s official statement. "we were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the second amendment while claiming that no policy proposals would be prejudiced, this task force spent most of its time on restrictions on lawful firearms owners. based on that, it does not sound like there is much common ground between the national rifle association and the white house." but the vice president indicated otherwise. he also says he thinks a great deal can be done without in any way impinging on the rights the second amendm
